Speak Out

Today's Printed Speak Out

Ask Native Americans

For those of you who may lack historical perspective, illegal immigration has always been a problem in the U.S. If you don't believe me, ask any Native American.

Burgers and BBQ

The president is out on the campaign trail eating burgers, sipping beer and eating barbecue. How does this connect with the first lady's healthy food agenda?

RX database

According to a New York Times story focusing on Sikeston, Missouri, Missouri is the only state in the union that lacks a drug prescription database for drugs with the potential for abuse. As a result, Missouri has become a haven for drug users and dealers. I've complained to legislators about this for years. Obviously, my complaint has fallen on deaf ears.

Court decision

For those poverty-stricken Missourians worried about a court ruling that could seemingly take their Obamacare away from them, do not fret. The ruling will not be upheld.

Man! Did I ever hit a few tender spots today! I forgot to mention that Missouri will not enact a law making it illegal to smoke in public, thus contaminating the air for non-smokers all over the place. And I want to stress that I'm not moving anyplace else. It ain't "Missouri--Love it or leave it". For me, it's "Missouri--Try your best to make it better for all of us to enjoy". Soooo, because the Democrats controlled the legislature a generation ago, we shouldn't blame the current Republican-controlled legislature for not doing anything worthwhile for its citizens? Seems like pretty convoluted thinking to me........

"It's pathetic and it makes one want to move out of the state"-- Posted by Raunchy on Mon, Jul 28, 2014, at 10:06 AM

It is still mainly free in America .

If you don't like Missouri , you are free to move somewhere else .

"It is against Missouri state law to have an open alcohol container inside a car ."

Nope, If you are a passenger you can enjoy an open alcoholic container as you ride.

It is against the law to have an open alcohol container if the driver is the only person in the vehicle. You must have 1 fewer open beverage than person in the vehicle.

There are cities in Missouri that have open container laws that apply if you are within city limits, but Cape Girardeau has no such law.

I don't get it .

It's against the law in Missouri but not against the law in some cities . How does that work ? Am I missing something ?

.............

Prepare to be attacked, NIL.

I know...you think I act like I know everything. Ironically enough, you're completely wrong. I practically BEG people to show me if I'm mistaken.

When a person tries they are deemed a liar .

What's the point in even trying ?

And just double check where that statement is coming from. Funny! Really Funny!
